So, you're a dyed-in-the-wool General Motors (http://www.autoblog.com/tag/general+motors/) fan, but like the notion of a machine like the Hennessey Velociraptor (http://www.autoblog.com/2013/06/13/2013-hennessey-velociraptor-600-suv-review-first-drive/). We have good news for you. Behold the Aria Coachworks XPLORE Cadillac Escalade (http://www.autoblog.com/cadillac/escalade/). For a modest fee, Aria will outfit your Escalade with a custom suspension, BF Goodrich all-terrain tires wrapped around aluminum wheels, a Warn winch and a special exhaust. There's even a snorkel option for those of you with aspirations toward deep water crossings. Consider yourself warned, however: unlike other GMT900 (http://www.autoblog.com/tag/gmt900/) SUVs, the Cadillac (http://www.autoblog.com/cadillac/) only has an all-wheel drive system, not the more rugged four-wheel drive setup of the Chevy Tahoe (http://www.autoblog.com/chevrolet/tahoe/)and GMC Yukon (http://www.autoblog.com/gmc/yukon/)). Outside, the luxury SUV gets matte paint, black chrome trim, XPLORE (http://www.autoblog.com/tag/xplore/) power running boards and a roof rack system.

The interior also receives a few fun changes as well, but we're more interested in the fact that buyers can snag a power roof top tent. You know, in case you need to camp out at Best Buy for the PS4. There's also a matching camp trailer and, our personal favorite, a matching BMW GS motorcycle (http://www.autoblog.com/tag/bmw+gs/). Bikes not your bag of tricks? That's fine. Aria will also sell you a matched Airstream trailer or Old Town wooden canoes. As much as we want to hate this, we love the notion of bashing through the woods in a $100,000 Cadillac battlewagon with our GS in tow.
